STRAVINSKY, I.: Sacre du printemps (Le) / Dumbarton Oaks (Seattle Symphony, Schwarz)

Following successes with The Firebird (Naxos 8.571221) and Petrushka (Naxos 8.571222), Stravinsky’s ballet The Rite of Spring was the most ambitious and controversial result of his collaboration with Sergey Dyagilev’s Ballet russes, the première performance in 1913 leading to a riot in the theatre. The Rite of Spring portrays atmospheric and dramatic pagan rituals which culminate in a sacrificial dance, during which the Chosen One dances herself to death. The Dumbarton Oaks concerto represents Stravinsky´s later neoclassical style, referring to Bach in its compact scale and transparency of language.


Stravinsky, Igor
